Valu-net Realty is proud to be one of southern Indiana's first Fee-For-Service real estate brokerages. Our mission is to save you, the homeowner, as much of the equity you have built up in your home as possible when it's time to sell.
Traditional national franchise brokerages charge sellers a large percentage commission (typically 5 - 7%) plus additional document handling fees once the seller's home is sold. These brokerages rationalize their large fees because they buy large advertising spots. But how effective is this advertising? Today, 95% of home buyers begin their search on the internet, not the newspaper or television. Most buyers are either viewing their local MLS (multiple listing service) database or searching REALTOR.com®, Zillow®, or Trulia®. Exposure in these web sites dramatically increases the marketability of one's home. Large splashy print ads in newspapers that few still subscribe to are just no longer necessary.
Unbundling the typical services that a real estate broker performs and then charging only for those services allows the homeowner to save thousands of dollars. Valu-net Realty is ready to serve you (and only charge you) for the Realty and marketing services you need. With Valu-net Realty you can choose to list your home on the local MLS and on 80 other real estate web sites across the internet for as little as $199. Then, if a REALTOR® sells your home you will only pay typically about ˝ of the standard commission. And if you sell your home yourself you will pay NO commission!
This is truly a revolutionary new way to market your home. BUT, you must talk to us first... if you sign a listing contract with a traditional broker, you are typically obliged to only working with them for a period of 6 months AND you will likely give up the right to sell your home yourself!
